Pupil premium and additional funding

OA Cam Pupil Premium Plan 2021-2024 - Updated Dec 23 Download

What is pupil premium funding?

Pupil Premium is funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or have been in care for 6 months or longer.

Within an alternative provision school such as ours it is very difficult to provide a completely accurate picture of the level of PPG to be allocated as this figure can fluctuate throughout the year depending on the students who attend our academy.

The three year plan summarises our challenges, objectives and intended outcomes - Funding for these initiatives comes from both the wider school budget and the pupil premium grant (PPG).

Monitoring and accountability

At Olive Academies, the trustees are ultimately accountable for the impact of pupil premium spending funding across the Trust. Within the academy, the headteacher is responsible for agreeing the plans and the Academy Advisory Board monitors its impact. We also get expert advice from a pupil premium grant reviewer and share learning across our network of academies. We share good practice and learning between academies within the trust, report to the AAB on a regular basis and publish our report annually.
